Amongst the numerous awards presented at the annual Spring Fling, are:

The Lucy Sprague Public Service Scholarship is presented at May graduation to an individual that has made a demonstrated commitment to public service work while in law school and obtains post-graduate employment in furtherance of such public service commitment. Up to $25,000 is available to be awarded each year and typically goes to one student.

The Elmer C. Kissane Public Service Award is presented each December and May to one graduate that is starting a career with the Cook County State's Attorney's Office.
